    NOTES:

  • Jim's Jazzmaster for the bulk of the "nyc ghosts" tour, later replaced by the Musicman Stingray. The guitar originally had a Strat neck (and was nicknamed "Strazz") but it was converted to a Jazzblaster with a proper neck and Tele Deluxe pickups. Jim used it for 'Expressway' at some point. Lee reclaimed it for the 2006 tour. Contains same tuning notes that this one does, curious...

  • 2 soap bars, replaced w/ Tele Deluxe pickups
  • Maple fretboard, strat neck (originally), replaced with Jazzmaster neck
  • 1 toggle switch

  • Trem bar
  • Mastery bridge added circa 2009
